Preview for STA vs STR Dream11 Contest
After starting the tournament on a fantastic note, the Melbourne Stars have slumped to new lows, having lost five games in a row. Glenn Maxwell and his team aren’t playing the best possible cricket at the moment, and they face another under-confident unit in Adelaide Strikers at this point. However, the Strikers broke their losing streak to register their second win of the campaign against Hurricanes and are entering this game with a few players hitting form.
Probable Playing XI
Joe Clarke (wk), Charlie Wakim, Hilton Cartwright, Tom O’ Connell, Justin Avendano, Qais Ahmad, Brody Couch, Haris Rauf, Travis Dean, Patrick Rowe, Ahmad Daniyal
Matthew Short, Jake Weatherald, Matt Renshaw, Jonathan Wells, Henry Hunt, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielson (wk), Rashid Khan, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle (c), Harry Conway

The forecast in Melbourne is quite pleasant for a game of cricket. The temperatures will range from 16-27 degrees and the conditions will remain cloudy.
The MCG has not been the best of chasing grounds this season, and teams batting first have found great success with scores in excess of 160.
STA vs STR Dream11 Prediction
Both teams are struggling to find form and there are a number of players missing out on this game due to various reasons. Try to find a good balance between the individual talents that are available and go for options like Rashid Khan for multiplier roles.
STA vs STR Dream11 Captaincy Picks
Matthew Short: Short has been one of the most prolific run-scorers this edition, having already registered 257 runs in 9 games and is starting to pick wickets with the ball too. He is a top contender for captaincy in small leagues.
Hilton Cartwright: One of the most powerful strikers of the ball in the tournament, Hilton Cartwright has scored 255 runs at a strike of 148.26. He is worth a gamble as captain in mega leagues.
Rashid Khan: A consistent performer with the ball, and sometimes with the bat, Rashid Khan keeps every team in the hunt. He has picked up 13 wickets in 9 games this season.
STA vs STR Dream11 Budget Picks
Thomas Kelly: Kelly has been in good touch for the Strikers, scoring 142 runs at an average just above 23. He costs 8.5 credits and is worth that investment.
Jonathan Wells: At the top, Jonathan Wells is quite crucial for the Strikers and despite finding form in patches, he scored 212 runs thus far and can be trusted with a place in the side. He costs 8.5 credits.
Broady Couch: Couch has been bowling well this season, and has picked up 11 wickets in 8 games at an average of 20.36. At 8.5 credits, he is definitely a worthwhile pick.
